I was doing a bit of crafts or ‘craps’ as Madame calls it this afternoon while husband was catching some zzz’s. Art is not my forte but I do enjoy doing it. I was painstakingly cutting out some circles for flower petals. We glued them onto the paper and added a stem and some butterfly stickers. Then hubby strolled in and scribbled on the petals! Grrr! I can’t believe how upset I got. He ruined our masterpiece I felt deflated. It reminded me that I’ll need to be sensitive with Madame about her artwork.
He did make amends by doing a couple more pictures with her and no, I didn’t scribble on them.
Under the sea!
In the Jungle!
A question for you: When doing artwork with my 2 year old I tend to draw (badly) houses, cars, bicycles, butterflies, etc but she’s only at the stage of doing scribbles, very good ones I might add. But, on a couple of occasions after I’ve drawn something she says ‘I can’t draw’ and insists that I do it….should we stick to doing scribbles as well?
